I only go to CBR for the movie and tv news now. These stupid list things seem like filler to me. The only other interesting thing left other than the news is the Comic Book Legends at the weekend.

Stanton was brilliant in every role he took on. I was amazed and confused by his little cameo in The Avengers!

Aaaand we have a winner! Well spotted Greg.

From all of the great stories and strips that have been in 2000ad over the decades The Symbiote was the one one-off strip I remember enjoying the most as a kid. It seems that no-one knows who the creative team who worked on it were. Any ideas?

My feeble ruse to get more people to read - and more importantly vote - on this thread has kind of spiralled off on to another thread entirely. So, bringing it back where it belongs, can any of those Twoothy historians out there work from which vintage strip my story originates? The guesses so far are;

The Volunteer from the 1982 Annual

A text story with McCarthy illustrations

Bang bang said the Green Cheese Man from the 1981 Annual.

Three good attempts but no cigar!

Sorry guys it wasn't a text story and it didn't feature the 'Green Cheese Man.'

I'll continue this little challenge over on the writing comp thread...

You're heading in the right direction Monsieur Baggins but not far enough back into the mists of time...(Sorry Napalm I didn't mean to Jack your thread, man!)

Sooo...this is my entry for this month's comp. Just for a challenge, I won't state from which strip this story originated. I wonder how long it will take the thrillpowered custodians and meisters on this forum to scour Twoothy history to find it!

THE SORROW IN THE STARS

He could hear them. They knew he could hear them. Barron had hard-wired Marko's audio sensors so that the pilot would always hear what they were doing. The intimate, organic sounds of their coupling shamed him. He was their unwilling voyeur. Beneath the metal and circuits, his heart and mind were still active, still raw.

'It's just a matter of patience.'Cora had once said as they waited for the intrusion-link to produce the combination to a max vault. 'All hell and shit might be coming down around you but you've got to keep cool and take the time to get it right.'

Forty years had passed since Marko and his lover had been caught stealing a ship.To exploit his piloting skills, the authorities had integrated his mind into the system of a patrol cruiser. Fate was to punish him further. Poisonous memories stung the encased pulp of his brain. The target had been a smuggler's freighter. Marko used his cannons with deadly precision. Cora had been the freighter pilot. The sound of her last breath haunted his systems.

Sickened by consequences and sorrow, Marko felt that regret and hate were all that remained of his human self.

A crescendo of voices came from the living quarters. They were done and would soon be asleep. Marko stared out of the view screen. The beauty of the velvet void and the coloured stars meant little to him. His sensors were fixed on the white burning disc of Vuvouna.

The authorities had sold the cruiser as redundant stock. The sale did not retire or free Marko. How could it? His body had been harvested for organs decades ago. He had been sold along with the ship, like a damned optional extra. Barron and his moxian whore had bought the cruiser and started a lousy haulage business in the ass-pit of the galaxy.

'The worst thing is Barron - ' Marko whispered static. ' - is that you remind me of what I used to be.'

It had taken years. Through endless hours of silently exploring the parameters of the ship's mainframe, Marko discovered a back-door. He reached cautiously with his mind, disabling alarms and signals in miniscule increments. As Barron went about his shit-heeled business, a revolution was going on beneath that metallic hide. Piece by piece, byte by byte, Marko gained control of the ship.

Marko set course and speed. The engines silently pushed the cruiser on towards the sun. The panel before him flashed red. He had disabled the alarms but promised himself to switch them back on once they were close. It would not be fair to let Barron and Adrixa sleep through such a wondrous experience. The steel carcass would ensure that he would be the last to die. The light of Vuvouna filled the cockpit.

Laughter buzzed through his communicator. It was a glorious day - the end of sorrow, the end of suffering.

Salem' s Lot was a brilliant adaptation. I remember how people talked about it for days after that first broadcast.

Hooper was a fine director, unfortunately overlooked by the business due to the furore over his first movie. Yet, watching Chainsaw again years after the whole video nasty debacle, it surprised me how shots and scenes were almost arthouse in style. It was one of the first documentary style horror films but there was an discordant abstraction to it all. And that soundtrack! It made my skin crawl and my brain itch!
